Google Maps Will Now Help You Find Parking In Some Cities

More parking features added to Google Maps, including difficulty icons in 25 non-US cities

According to Google, if you're an Android user (sadly, it's not available for iOS), you can now use the navigation app to "find parking" at your destination. The parking difficulty is gauged by machine learning, so it might not be correct every time, but at least having a ballpark is a step in the right direction.

Google Maps has slowly and steadily converted itself from a tool that was just supposed to help us get directions from point A to point B to a tool that finds and tells us useful information around either of those points and during the travel route too. Now, that feature is coming to 25 new cities in regions outside the USA, such as Canada, Brazil, Russia and various European countries.

Google had released parking difficulty icons earlier this year and have now expanded the feature to users in 25 more cities outside us, while those in the United States of America also get an update with the "Find Parking" feature.

When available, the parking difficulty icon appears in the bottom of a direction card screen, and it ranks parking availability as "limited", "medium" or "easy" based on historical parking data. This feature is now expanding to 25 additional cities outside of the US, including Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Rome, Sao Paulo, Toronto and Vancouver. These difficulty icons will allow users to see how hard it might be to park in certain places.

Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, DC, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa.
